Thanks in advance > for the help. FedEx, or Forward Air. FedEx - Door-to-door, reliable, easy to do business with. Forward Air - Terminal to terminal. You deliver it to their facility near an airport, they deliver it to a terminal near the destination airport. This means that you need guys and a truck at both ends. A bit more trouble than FedEx to do business with. You'll typically need to palletize your gear. http://www.fedex.com/ http://www.forwardair.com/ -- Jay Hennigan - CCIE #7880 - Network Administration - firstname.lastname@example.org WestNet: Connecting you to the planet. 805 884-6323 WB6RDV NetLojix Communications, Inc. - http://www.netlojix.com/
